    Christopher Pike. He was a Captain of the Enterprise..and without him there would have been no Kirk, Spock and McCoy..

    As for Discovery, I get why you would exclude a show in it's infancy, but if there was the slightest chance of Michelle Yeoh and/or Jason Isaacs doing voice work for Cryptic could you really say "not interested?"

    I really like the fully voice acted episodes, especially the newest ones but think about how much money must have gone into that. I'd rather have less voice acting but an overall better game quality for that.

    I'd like all of the above, plus Pike and I wouldn't say no to the Discovery crew.

    But like seriousdave said, An overall better game would be even better than more VAing.
    Now a LTS and loving it.

    Just because you spend money on this game, it does not entitle you to be a jerk if things don't go your way.

    Picard
    I would have said Janeway but in an interview, she stressed how filming Voyager helped drive a wedge between her and her children due to the amount of time she had to dedicate to the show, and because of that, she's done with Star Trek. A shame really but I can understand where she's coming from.

    So, Jean Luc Picard, please. Make It So!

    (I also wouldn't mind seeing Archer at some point)

    Voice acting is different than actual acting....no costumes...no makeup...no having to do the grind week after week after week.

    It's more a case of "Too many bad memories" that Star Trek holds for her. Not a case of her time these days considering her kids are all grown up now. Plus the fact that there is still friction between them.

    EDIT: The documentary where she gave the interview was with William Shatner and all the other Star Trek Captains and was Called "Captains" IIRC. It should still be on Netflix.

    This right here. I'd rather the money that spent on getting the voice actors for ViL, go toward content, with better game play, and bugs fixes.

    All, but good luck in lining a number of them up for STO. Most especially Avery Brooks. I'm also kind of iffy on... [Dons Asbestos Suit]... Patrick Stewart's video game voiceovers. Most especially Star Trek games. His Starfleet Command 3 voicework seemed like a, "I came here to collect a paycheck" type of deal.

    Kate Mulgrew's done a number of decent video game voiceovers with the Dragon Age series.

    Sisko
    Picard and Janeway would be a cute cameos, but Sisko still has more story to tell. Of course, I'd also love to hear William Shatner in the game as Emperor Tiberius of the Mirror Universe.

    Shran was a famous captain. I'd like to see him, or possibly his grandkid.

    Kirk
    Kirk was irritating cowboy, but in the end I liked him most as a captain. Picard was irritating buffoon from the beginning till the end. Never understood, why he was so praised by fans... For me only Archer was worse. I liked Sisko too, maybe even more than Kirk, but he was too "military" type and I don't like military types in general:) Janeway... Hard to telll... I always had mixed feelings about her. Sometimes she was great, sometimes she was horrible:)

    All the ones which dont involve time travel, an incredibly stupid plot device 99% of the time its used.
    Another faction is more than likely to be destructive to the game rather than helping. this game doesn't even have 3 healthy factions, it has one healthy faction, one neglected faction, and one neglected HALF faction.

    For the love of tribble kebab, NO MORE FACTIONS until they can support what we ALREADY HAVE.
    Characters:

    Captain Klein of the U.S.S. Yggdrasil (Liza)
    Captain Eon of the U.S.S. Heinlein (Sylvi)

    isn't she still staring in orange is the new black?
    that would mean she might not be up for it (though she does voice flemith in dragon age so who knows)

    Patrick stewart isn't up to much lately so he would probably be up for it.

    No he isn't, he has said he could be tempted to reprise Picard for Tarantino, or for a film involving all currently remaining Trek casts, but thats it. He is absolutely not up for STO, less so than Shatner.

    Even if Stewart was willing to consider it he'd be phenominally expensive. he's basicly an A list actor these days and thus even if he gave them a deal he'd be insanely costly. I suspect all of the captains would be... very expensive, (as in their entire voice budget for a year would be taken up by that one voice actor) Stewart is an A list actor, Brooks IIRC has retired, and talking him outta retirement would require an amazing script that speaks to him on a personal level, or a truck load of cash, neither of which are likely to come from Cryptic. Shatner likewise would demand too much money, as would Chris Pine. Mulgrew does a fair bit of voice acting so might be willing to take a shot at it but has bad personal memories with Trek.

    Picard
    Picard was my favorite, followed by Sisko and Kirk. I do support the idea that content, especially more episodes, should come before high priced actors. There are a couple of ways around this, though. One is using sound bytes from the shows or movies, especially deleted scenes. The other is to use low costing impersonators. Note that this poll was about what characters we'd like to see in game, not which actors should be hired.

    Where did they say that they wanted the actors in the game now? They were asking what actors you want but not the actual time to get them in the game.

    Answering another players poll isn't going to stop the dev team from focusing on fixing the current expansion of the game.

    I'm not opposed to the notion of a guest shot of any of the famous captains. Though with that, there's the issue of getting the actors themselves to agree to it. So if it can happen, great. But not going to hold my breath on it.

    All except for Kirk.
    This program, though reasonably normal at times, seems to have a strong affinity to classes belonging to the Cat 2.0 program. Questerius 2.7 will break down on occasion, resulting in garbage and nonsense messages whenever it occurs. Usually a hard reboot or pulling the plug solves the problem when that happens.

    Archer or Kirk - Would be interesting. But I'm generally against time travel shenanigans to do something like this, but if done 'right' would be OK.

    Janeway / Picard / Sisko - STO is ~60+yrs after all the series so hard to justify so many old characters being around and/or still active. Yeah, we don't know how old humans can be in Trek now. But McCoy was 137yrs in Encounter at Farpoint and didn't look like he was in any condition to drop kick some alien. :D So while I would like to see favorite characters in the game; most ways of shoe-horning them into it would be problematic. Even now in ViL the shear number of very spry OLD people is straining credulity, imo.
    I really like the fully voice acted episodes, especially the newest ones but think about how much money must have gone into that. I'd rather have less voice acting but an overall better game quality for that.

    VO work must be relatively 'easy' so how much would a main cast member cost anyway? I mean, Nana Visitor in ViL sounds like she's half asleep and there's no emotion. Like she's reading a book so her kid can go to sleep type of thing. :/ Not sure if she was told to read Kira as more calm now that she was Vedek or what, but some actors just don't seem to pull off VO well. (aka Denise Crosby in STO also is meh acting, imo)

    Sometimes I think I play STO just to have something to complain about on the forums.

    No problem for Sisko. He ascended to the wormhole and has been... dunno training? He's not done, but Avery Brooks may be.
